Biography: Merry was always a close friend of Frodo Baggins, and with Pippin and Samwise, spied out Frodo's plan to leave the Shire and unexpectedly joined him on his journey to Rivendell. Upon the arrival in Rivendell, Merry was selected to join the Fellowship, though Elrond was against it. Gandalf thought that the loyalty of a true friend may have been better than the might of a warrior. Merry travelled with the company to Parth Galen, where he and Pippin were captured by orcs. Merry and Pippin managed to escape into Fangorn forest during an attack on the orcs by the Rohirrim. There they met Treebeard, and played a major part in the rousing of the Ents and the destruction of Isengard. It was in Isengard where Merry met King Theoden, unto whom he pledged his service. He rode with Dernhelm, of Theoden's army, to Gondor. He fought valiantly in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, and aided in the avenging of Theoden's death. Merry was nearly killed by the black breath, but was healed by Aragorn. After the War of the Ring, Merry was made a knight of Rohan, and treated with honor whenever he returned. He then went home to the Shire, where he was one of the leading forces in its scouring. Upon the death of his father, Meriadoc was made Master of Buckland, and was known as Meriadoc the Magnificent.
